Halo: CE Anniversary to cost £34.99

Xbox remake gets budget price tag.

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, the forthcoming remake of the first game in Bungie's juggernaut FPS series, will have a RRP of £34.99 when it launches in the UK later this year.

In comparison, it's selling for $39.99 in the US, which translates to around £24.60.

Due out on 15th November, 343 Industries' game lets you play through the original Halo: Combat Evolved either in its original Xbox state or with new current-gen visuals.

Earlier this week publisher Microsoft refuted allegations that it was just milking fans of the franchise with the release.

"We had discussions about 'will people look at this as us milking it'," explained Microsoft Game Studios boss Phil Spencer, "but we figured with Achievements, Xbox Live, and 'up-res-ing' the game it was a project out of passion not a project out of business."
